Third Annual 811 Video Challenge

Is the Challenge open to anyone? The 811 Video Challenge is open to all CGA members.

When is the deadline to submit? The deadline to submit is 11:59 p.m. EST on Dec. 21, 2018.

What content is mandatory in a video submission? This year’s 811 Video Challenge theme focuses on PSAs or similar types of videos no longer than about 60 seconds in length. Submitted videos must make a reference to 811 but may also include references to other CGA programs.

How many entries can I submit? Each organization may submit up to four separate entries.

What format does my video need to be in? You can submit .MP4 and .MOV files. Be sure to submit landscape/horizontally-oriented videos.

Do I need to hire a professional? It’s not necessary, but you may if you prefer. Or you can simply use your own smartphone or GoPro to build a memorable video. Have fun and be creative!

Will all videos submitted be shared with membership for their use? Members will be able to check one of three options when submitting an entry which will determine how much the video can be used by others. Please be sure to check the appropriate box when you submit your entry.

When will the videos be shown? Select videos will be featured during the 2019 CGA Excavation and Safety Conference in Tampa next March. Videos will also be used in CGA presentations and social media channels.
